Kate Fahey: interview

Kate Fahey is concerned with slowing down how we interact with images. In the age of Google, where our consumption of the visual divorces us from context and meaning, Fahey seeks to reappropriate photographs that have become lost or degraded through continual sharing

Her background in printing leads her to consider the surface of her work, the texture and nature of the paper she uses, returning tactility and poetry to digital images. The result is Cumulative Loss, a hauntingly beautiful digital collage imbued with symbolism.
